Our goal is to build a culture of engagement and philanthropy on campus so that we may continue to support William & Mary in the future. By educating and engaging current students throughout their time at William & Mary, students will leave with a better understanding of the importance and impact of giving back to the university. By creating this culture, we hope to increase the number of students and young alumni giving to William & Mary and establish strong financial support for the university so the university can thrive for all time coming.Members of Students for University Advancement have opportunities to network with William & Mary alumni, sponsor large campus events and grow as student leaders as they foster engagement and a spirit of giving across campus.
The purpose of student philanthropy programs is to educate, engage and excite current William & Mary students about the importance and impact of supporting our alma mater after we graduate.
